Music Therapy

Music therapy is a music-based therapeutic modality that can be used to address a variety of personal therapeutic needs. You do not need prior music experience to participate in music therapy services.

 

As a music therapist who is also trained in somatic experiencing, clinical uses of the polyvagal theory (a theory of the autonomic nervous system), gestalt therapy, and hypnotherapy, and who is a current student of Diane Austin’s Vocal Psychotherapy approach, I offer a psychotherapeutic music therapy approach.

 

A psychotherapeutic music therapy approach means that music-based interventions will be used to support you in exploring and addressing mental, emotional, and behavioral patterns. A psychotherapeutic music therapy approach can support nervous system regulation and embodiment for those addressing trauma and relational issues.

 

Music therapy sessions may include

  • Breathwork
  • Toning, sounding, singing, or music making
  • Improvised vocalizing, singing, or music-making
  • Improvised sounding, singing, or music-making and movement

 

Music therapy sessions can be used for

  • Reducing stress and trauma triggers
  • Improving mood
  • Expanding personal awareness
  • Connecting with your body
  • Identifying internal resources
  • Exploring and identifying personal boundaries
  • Addressing interpersonal challenges
  • Supporting whole-hearted, embodied living
